Special Issue Information
Lichens, a symbiotic association between a fungus and one or more photosynthetic partners, are among the evolutionarily most successful symbiotic systems. Their broad ecological range and the high species diversity for the fungal partner demonstrates their extraordinary evolutionary success. The understanding of biological processes and eco-evolutionary dynamics of lichen symbionts has been greatly assisted by next-generation sequencing approaches which provide deeper insights into genome architecture.
In this Special Issue of Journal of Fungi entitled “Ecology and evolution of lichens and associated microorganisms”, we aim to bring together exciting new research contributing to progress and advancements in various areas, such as lichen ecology, evolution and taxonomy. We welcome manuscripts presenting original research addressing consequential questions as well as theoretical investigations that advance our understanding of the following topics through extensive research in these areas.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
